An All Star among us

Before Tuesday's All Star Game, the nation, and each player, honored ordinary people, who have done extraordinary things, 30 All Stars Among Us.Standing on the field among them, as the Phillies Representative, was Cherry Hill's Brad Hennefer.

We first introduced you to Brad 18 months ago. Believed to be the first athlete with Down Syndrome to earn varsity letters, in two sports, Brad was chosen to go to the game for the work he's done with his foundation, Golf for Life.

Brad's trip included special meetings with players, a ride in the red carpet parade, his name in lights, and his face on banners. They are souvenirs and memories to last a lifetime, but what made it the most special, is that he got to share it all, with his older brother Bob.

The National Down Syndrome Congress' slogan is "more alike than different." Brad and Bob proved that ? brothers, baseball fans, best friends.

"Just to see him on the field with all 30 all-stars, for them to have a tribute like that is very special," Bob said.

And most special to Brad? That he got to share it, with the most special person to him ? his brother.
